    I have heard that digestion of mamals is a rather repulsive smell in a Nep pitcher.
    Very cool indeed

    Thanks Augustin

    N. truncata is a beast.. Insects perish very quickly, faster than most other Nepenthes. I am sure the mouse didn't last much longer!

    One of the joys of shipping Nepenthes is dumping all the traps. And in some cases the occasional rinse out before I stick the plant into the box headed to the packaging facility (fancy word for my kitchen counter).

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Wow that pitcher must have been like a little mousy torcher chamber before it died. I'd probably let something like that free if I saw it in a pitcher....if it was still alive. I don't wanna smell it AND it's kinda....mean. Poor little guy.

    you'd think the mouse would have chewed his way out?

    Hi all. We have finally joined your interesting forum . We have seen our name(Exotica Plants) talked about a bit so thought we would join in. Thanks Gus for posting the photo, we are not sure how to do it yet.
    It may seem cruel seeing the mouse like that but it happens all the time in our nursery and no doubt in the wild. Andrea rescues the occasional one but it is usually too late as I assume it happens at night. From our experience they drown pretty quickly and are at the stage in the photo in about 5 days and surprisingly do not smell unless tipped out. In fact one of our large N.xtrusmardiensis plants had 3 in separate pitchers and they do not smell.
    We did have a large cane toad in an N.Dyeriana pitcher,though. It was only 1/2 in and it was a bit on the nose and rotted the pitcher. So I would say that as long as they are submerged in the pitcher fluid they do not smell.

    Geoff

    Worms stink to high heavens for a few days. I decided to try some in truncata and N. x miranda.

    Nice to see you here Geoff!
